This Hermès Birkin Touch bag features two sturdy rolled top handles, horizontal interlocking straps, turn lock closure and a signature padlock that opens with accompanying keys. The flap opens to a matching bleu encre lining with one Hermès engraved zipper pull and one slip pocket on the opposite side.


The Birkin bag of Hermès is the first one it bag bearing the name of a celebrity and which is really created by the same personality. Created at the random of one meeting of Jane Birkin and Jean Louis Dumas during one flight in 1984. She dropped her Hermes diary and papers spilled everywhere. She exclaimed no bag ever had enough pockets to hold all her papers! After many draft, the final design revealed the iconic bag by the same craftsman design in the hand in a unique way every part of the bag and affixes it his signature. Elegant and practical, we identify it with the flared shape, the two dotted leather parts together, the flap and the two stiff handles. It’s available in about many colors and variant of materials. This is a large bag that was strong and beautiful and soon enough it was to be one of the most sought after designs in the world.
